    Story
    (1690)

    In what is considered one of Heinlein's most hair-raising, thought-provoking, and outrageous adventures, the master of modern science fiction tells the strange story of an even stranger world. It is 21st-century Luna, a harsh penal colony where a revolt is plotted between a bashful computer and a ragtag collection of maverick humans, a revolt that goes beautifully until the inevitable happens. But that's the problem with the inevitable: it always happens.

    Peter says: "Heinlein's Masterpiece"
    "A classic"
    Overall

    I agree with the reviewer who commented on the surprise, but workability of the narrators accents. It explains alot about the syntax Mannie uses. You'll quickly get used to it, and it goes far in letting the listener track WHO is talking.

    What can I say? It's classic Heinlein at his best. The anachronisms are a bit attention getting, but not so much that it detracts from the story.

    This is a must for any sci-fi buff's collection.

    Story

    One night when he was 10, Tyler stood in his backyard and watched the stars go out. They flared into brilliance, then disappeared, replaced by an empty black barrier. He and his best friends, Jason and Diane Lawton, had seen what became known as the Big Blackout. It would shape their lives.

    Robert says: "A Classic"
    "A very good 'read'"
    Overall

    This was a very good read. What I found thought provoking was the novel idea of accelerating time through the 'spin'. Very fascinating, and where the author goes with that will keep you glued to the speakers.

    The only questionable aspect to the story was how DENSE some of the characters were to the time disparity. I chalked it to the author trying to reinforce those aspects of the story, and easily forgot the "duh" factor. (face it, many REAL people are dense)

    I'd recommend this book to anybody.
